Isaan Maps


Recommended Posts

I hope they redo Isaan sometime on the top Google Earth resolution, but am not holding my breath!

A couple of years ago, I came across a reference by some Flight Simulation buff to actual terrain (rather than the computer generated stuff) for the Udon Thani and Khon Kaen airport areas. That might be worth following up, for two little bits.

Down at Khon Kaen University, I have seen a really high resolution overhead of that huge campus. Each building and every road on the campus is clearly identifiable. I will ask around, because it shows the stuff exists somewhere.

Does anyone know if it is possible to get big scale maps of local areas here?

Presumably the highways departments and the 'amphoe' officers must have them, but will they sell copies and who does one ask?

I would like to know if you have had any success in getting these maps. I am also after large scale maps of the area between Mukdahan and Ubon along Route 212. I am particularly interested in the area around Loeng Nok Tha, about half way between Amnat Charoen and Mukdahan. I worked there in 1967-68 on the construction of the airfield and a rural development road. I would also be interested in making email contact with people who are currently living in the area or are familiar with it. This includes any Brit or Australian Sappers or others who worked on the airfield/road.

Member "sezzo" is ex ADF & in your area.

There are maps produced for each province (?) look for fold out maps locally with a red cover.

Sorry, I don't know the printer as all my maps are in storage. :o

With luck, I may get to find the information about locally-produced large-scale maps, as I am starting some research at Khon Kaen University that will bring me and some of the thai-speaking research students into contact with 'amphoe' officials.

I will certainly post on here anything that I find out from them, or from the Geography lecturers.

How big is "Phon Jalern"?

If it is a village (i.e. "Ban Phon Jalern"), within the amphoe (district) of Bung Khan, it probably won't be big enough to appear on any map that I know of.

However, if it is a big town, I would guess you might be looking for Phon Charoen, which is about 40 km due south of Bung Kan on Highway 222.
